Mutisia decurrens (S576ac: 1900)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: A letter to the Editor printed on page 169 of the 3 March 1900 issue of The Garden. To link directly to this page, connect with: http://people.wku.edu/charles.smith/wallace/S576AC.htm

[To the Editor of "The Garden."]

     Sir,--In reply to "T. J. W." I beg to say that I have had this plant for six or seven years, doing well and flowering every year. It is growing against a south wall with a projecting balcony above it, and to this I attribute its success, as it is kept dry in winter and spring, and thus neither frost nor wet hurts it. This overhead shelter is, I feel sure, valuable for many tender plants. In a similar situation Daphne indica has been growing for many years, flowering beautifully every winter. The Mutisia runs much underground and sends up suckers freely, but I find these very hard to remove safely.

A. R. W., Parkstone, Dorset.
